Margaux is a town northwest of Bordeaux, France in the Médoc wine region. It is also the name of the French wine appellation, the premiere estate (1° Grand Cru classé) being Châteaux Margaux, widely considered one of the finest vintage wine makers in the world. The estate has been producing wine since the late 16th century, but only began to gain its reputation after 1705.

My name is Margaux and it is incorrect that the origin came with Margaux Hemingway. This is a HUGE falsehood. Margaux is the oldest form of Margot. You will know this because of Margaux, France. Which is city of France which is known worldwide for producing the finest wine. Similar to Bordeaux wines, Margaux wines are held in equally high esteem. Please correct the Margaux Hemingway portion. Yes, she is a famous Margaux. But she did NOT originate the spelling. Thank you!

Yes, there is a place called Margaux in France, but was this used as the spelling for the diminutive of Marguerite? As far as I know, -ot was the normal way to spell diminutives like this one, and Margaux Hemingway simply found the spelling of the place name prettier than Margot.

Funnily enough, Margaux is currently about twice as popular as Margot in France.

A little too fancy for me. If someone didn't know to say MAR-go they could have said MAR-gox or something. Other than that it's an ok name.
